From conveying and washing to cooking and bottling, fruit and vegetable applications are highly dependent on water in their processes. Because we’re dealing primarily with earth-grown materials, generated wastewater has high loads of organic content tied up in it. To manage the high volumes of water and elevated levels of organics, a DAF system should provide lots of surface area and be paired with the right chemical program.

Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) systems are used all throughout food and beverage wastewater treatment applications because of their ability to remove total suspended solids (TSS) and particulate BOD. They’re highly resilient to process alterations and, when designed properly, perform their job day in and day out with minimal operator intervention. With over 100 installations in food and beverage plants, we’ve got the experience to design the right solution for your facility.
